You did not thoroughly enough. It says:
"Xfree86 4.2.1 is required to install these packages, you can get it
deb http://people.debian.org/~blade/woody/i386 ./"
You forgot that, as can be seen in the apt-get output you attached:
gnome-core: Depends: acme (>= 2.0) but it is not going to be installed
Depends: xlibs (>= 4.2.0) but 4.1.0-16 is to be installed
Depends: xfonts-base (>= 4.2.0) but 4.1.0-16 is to be installed
So, supposing that dist-upgrade hasn't uninstalled important stuff, you
only have to add the deb line for X 4.2.1 to sources.list, then apt-get
update && apt-get upgrade.
